Wheel of Fortune Templates

When I was in Houston I ran over to John Flynn's booth and picked up a set of his Wheel of Fortune templates.

He really offers a very affordable set. These were only $10 in U.S. currency.
*By the way, John Flynn is getting ready to teach classes at Superior Threads School of Threadology next month right here in St. George, Utah. Contact ricci@superiorthreads.com if you are interested in finding out more about his class schedule.

I have been seeing this fun block being made on so many blogs in the last few months.

Lurline made hers as part of the BOM with Material Obsession. Their packets included a lot of Kaffe's which drew me in like a bloodhound on a trail.

Sue Ross (formerly of Timeless Threads) is also teaching this as a class at Material Obsession. If time and money were no constraint, you would see me hopping on over to Australia and taking this class from Sue ASAP. But for now, I will have to be satisfied to pull out all my Kaffe fabrics and dream in my own little sewing room.

I didn't know John Flynn had those templates. They look great! I am doing MO's BOM as well and love it!

Wasn't that a good find? I'm happy to be doing the Sue Ross bom through MO, she does wonderful quilt designs.

Hi Nedra! I loved seeing your pics of Houston - it was like being there only without the sore feet! Next time I'll take better shoes! I'm glad all went well - it looked like you were super busy! I wish I'd seen those templates - might have to order me some! xo, Nan

They look like great templates. You will have to tell us how easy the blocks are to put together with them.
